Brad Pitt teams up with Groupon

Brad Pitt is offering fans with deep pockets - and a spare £15,000 - the chance to meet the star at a charity event.

The Hollywood actor has partnered up with vou cher website Groupon in aid of his charity Make It Right, which builds homes and communities for people in need.

Ten winners and their guests from around the world will be flown to New Orleans and stay for three nights in a suite at the W Hotel.

They'll meet the actor and watch performances from Kings Of Leon and Bruno Mars at a charity gala.

The Daily Mirror reported that from April 22, fans can donate £15,000 to Make It Right to secure a place on a first come, first served basis, or enter the free draw, which is being run in the UK, France and Germany, from which one winner will be chosen at random on May 6.

Brad founded Make It Right in 2007, after being shocked by the lack of progress in rebuilding homes in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.

All proceeds from the deal - including a £60,000 donation from Groupon - go directly to the charity.
